Picks for the Week

The Nittany Lions have been poor off bye weeks in the James Franklin era. Pair that with a difficult time winning at Michigan and this matchup becomes rather unfavorable.

The Wolverines have not played a team as talented as Penn State Football this season. This game will come down to how well Sean Clifford and the offense can move the ball.

A first loss for the Nittany Lions is most likely on the table, given the environment and previous results at the Big House.

However, the over is always played when these 2 teams meet, and the games can often result in blowouts or shootouts.

Prediction: Michigan 35, Penn State Football 24

Big Ten Pick of the Week

Minnesota vs Illinois (+6.5)

The Gophers will look to rebound off their loss to Purdue with an increasingly difficult matchup against the Illini. Illinois is 5-1 on the season with their only loss on a last second drive to Indiana.

The Illini have already defeated traditional Big 10 West powers in Wisconsin and Iowa. Illinois is 4-2 ATS and the Gophers are 4-1.

Expect Illinois to cover this spread and possibly come out with the outright victory.
